Either the oil is low in the gear box or the selector is out of adjustment.
Unless you are a bike mechanic, it is a job for the Kawasaki agent.

The neutral lite wont stay on , the foot lever is not allowing it to go to neutral

The neutral light won't stay on because the gearbox isn't in neutral. try rocking the bike backwards and forwards, kick the gears down as many time as you can (at least 6) and then try moving the gear lever up one until the bike moves freely backwards and forwards. Your bike should then start. It would be easier to identify any problems if you let us know the make and model of the bike.

Cant find neutral on a 1978 Yamaha 650 motorcycle?

Is this something that was working fine and then stopped? What's your experience level with this or any bike? Neutral would normally be a "half click" between 1st and 2nd - meaning with first all the way down, you would need to make a gentle step up on the shifter into neutral - a normal upstep would take you to second. It's not unusual to get kind of stuck there when the bike is stationary - with the bike running and in first, you should be able to release the clutch enough to pull ahead just a couple of feet...then neutral should be just a gentle upstep away.

Hi, Bajaj Avenger: Self start does not work when the bike is not on neutral. It starts only when the gear is on neutral. The service centre could not fix the problem. What might have gone...

By your bike design your starter motor will work only when you proceed to neutral because your neutral gear has a switch closed when neutral and opens when you put on gear...dont collapse it...if you do any modification you will obtain wiring problem...

What are the gears on the ax 100 i cant remember please help as i cant drive i forget the gears thanks

The standard shift pattern is "one down-four up" with neutral between 1st and 2nd gear. Your bike may only have four gears. Please rate my answer. Thanks. tombones49_113.gif

I bought a 2003 R6 from this guy who said the chain broke on him. The bike only in neutral and first gear. i cant hift up from one to two or neutral to two. Plus I dont the clutch is engaging at all. once...

personally I have never heard of a chain breaking and having any affect on the transmission and shifting. although if the chain broke and caught the shifter, it may have pulled the shifter so hard that it could have bent the shifting forks inside the transmission.. this would explain most of your problems..replace the chain,and with the bike "off" and in neutral, on level ground, rock it back and fourth about 6 inches and try shifting from neutral to 1st and then back up to neutral, and then to 2nd. keep rocking the bike back and fourth while doing this and do this WITHOUT using the clutch. If it wont go to the gears easily, the shift forks are likely bent. there is a safety switch for the kickstand that will shut the bike down if the kickstand is down and bike is in gear. if the kickstand is up and releasing the clutch shuts down the bike, the chain may have damaged that as well. Hope this helps..

Will not start or go into nurtal

Anyway'Lets see turn the ignition key on so you have dash lights etc, Jog the bike back and forth gently while trying to shift the gears, what you are looking for is the green neutral light to come on on the dash.If this does not work..'. turn the ignition off..'. jog the bike GENTLY WITH THE CLUTCH IN AND WHILE THE BIKE IS STILL MOVING A VERY small amount release the clutch.'turn the ignition back on.'Now pull the clutch in and again attempt to shift the gears and activate the green neutral light. If you cant shift down, shift up, if the green lite blinks youve shifted thru neutral go back the other way. When you get a green light pull the clutch in and start the bike. Other Problems.'. You may have an airlock in the clutch line Take it to dealer and have it bled or get a knowledgable person to help you bleed the line. Is your battery OK. Is your kill switch activated.
